Well, the 7 game home stand got off to a nice start. Snapping the 3 game losing streak against the Isles….even better! Richards seems to be heating up at just the right time. Gabby has been himself. Cally needs to rest for the playoff grind. Apparently I’m writing short statements. :)
All kidding aside, the Rangers, with Pittsburgh breathing down our necks, have 14 left, and the next 6 at home. Thursdays match-up should be fun at the ol’ garden. Pitt Vs. NYR! If the team keeps up their winning ways, when the post season begins, we will probably be matched up with Ottawa, Washington, or even Winnipeg or Buffalo, if either team can sneak in. Who do you want to see them play? Ottawa is always trouble for the blueshirts. Other then Ottawa, I have no qualms with playing any of the other teams mentioned. Any team, any night can be trouble. This year though, the Rangers have bred confidence in their followers with their work ethic, and commitment to blocking everything. Hopefully us gun-shy fans can have something to celebrate about after the next 14 games.
